Thousands held hostage in passenger starliner hijacking

MENTHAR CORRIDOR — Colonial extremists have hijacked the quantum starliner Charles Lindbergh and are holding her 3,300 passengers and crew hostage.

“We can confirm one of our starliners is involved,” said a statement released by Unity Transport, operator of the Charles Lindbergh.

“We are working with Federation and Starfleet officials to bring this crisis to an end as safely and quickly as possible.”

The Charles Lindbergh made her maiden voyage from Vulcan to Ramatis III late last year, as the first of Unity Transport’s new quantum slipstream fleet. She was on her way to Anoria XII when sector traffic control suddenly received a mayday distress call from the starliner before all communications cut off.

Shortly after, the hijackers, led by known criminal and extremist Gabriela Cariño, made their demands known, having secured their apparent prime target: Trill Chief of Staff Anari Kthria, who was on her way to Anoria to chair a conference on colonial affairs.

“I have many, but we can start with the dissolution of the Kalandra Reconstruction Authority, and the Federation to stop stealing resources that belong to the border words,” said Cariño in a message to the USS Invicta, a Starfleet vessel ordered to respond to the incident.

Federation President Narala has dispatcher her new Secretary of the Exterior, former ambassador Lily Ventu, to the area to assess the situation and see that the crew of the Invicta can negotiate an end to the standoff peacefully, or otherwise resolve the crisis.
